Our first shop was chosen to be in the main square of what is arguably one of the most endearing villages in Crete — Archanes. It can trace its origins back to minoan times and it is ideally situated in the heartland of heraklion's wine and olive oil region. A large number of our grocery products are from this special area of crete. In addition, local artisanal farmers, many of them organic, will be highlighted and their products used in the restaurant.
Visitors to crete can taste, buy and even have products shipped home to them. Join us for an aromatic mountain tea & dessert, an indulgent breakfast or discover new, eclectic taste combinations in our sandwiches, salads and meze (Cretan tapas) anytime of the day, paired with one of our sublime Cretan wines.
Are you a dedicated gastronome interested in learning some secrets of Cretan Cuisine or a true oenophile who would like to know more about the local grape varieties and to taste the myriad of wonderful wines on this island? Perhaps you would just simply like to be guided through a fun and informative TASTING of artisanal cheeses or olive oils or honeys? Then BAKALIKO is the place to be!
From time to time we hold Themed Weekends, Wine Dinners, Product Highlights, Product Introductions and more.
